Abstract

In an insulin pump (1), at least one alarm transmitter (21) can be deactivated by a signal (17) from a blood glucose meter (11). This can suppress alarms on the pump (1) which are unnecessary due to measurements. This increases the ease of use of the arrangement of pump and meter.

Description

  • The invention relates to an arrangement comprising at least one infusion pump and at least one measuring device for measuring a body value of the patient receiving the infusion, wherein the infusion pump has at least one alarm transmitter. The invention further relates to an insulin pump, a blood glucose meter and a method for administering an insulin infusion.
  • Infusion pumps, in particular body-worn insulin pumps, are known. Such insulin pumps deliver insulin according to the set basal rate and additionally deliver needed insulin as a bolus, which is not explained further here. There are also various types of measuring devices for body values, in particular as blood glucose measuring devices, for example as blood glucose meters working with measuring strips. In the case of insulin pumps, it is known that the user can program alarms of a buzzer that serve as reminders, and that alarms from an alarm generator are also delivered by the pump itself as signals following events in order to also alert the user to necessary or advisable actions. As an example of an infusion pump of such kind can US-B-6,852,104 to get expelled.
  • The invention is based on the object to improve an arrangement of infusion pump and meter, in particular insulin pump and blood glucose meter.
  • This object is achieved in an arrangement of the type mentioned above in that the alarm of the alarm can be deactivated by a wireless or wired from the infusion pump signal of the meter.
  • The fact that an alarm transmitter, the infusion pump can be deactivated by a signal from the meter, resulting in a reduction of unnecessary alarm messages. For example, such alarms that the user so far have been reminiscent of actions, but this has already carried out by itself or the situation is not necessary, can be suppressed.
  • The invention is further based on the object to improve an insulin pump or to improve a blood glucose meter.
  • This is achieved with the corresponding claims directed to the insulin pump or with the corresponding claims directed to the blood glucose meter.
  • The invention is further based on the object of improving a method for administering an insulin infusion, which is achieved with the corresponding method patent claims.
  • In the following, embodiments of the invention will be explained in more detail with reference to FIG.
  • The figure shows schematically an arrangement of an insulin pump and a blood glucose meter.
  • The insulin pump 1, which is shown here as a preferred example of an infusion pump, has an insulin reservoir 2. The control 4 of the pump via a drive 3 and a piston, not shown, a controlled and precisely metered delivery of insulin to a patient 6. This is done via an infusion line 7 and a cannula located in the patient's body 8. Such insulin pumps are known and commercially available so that their structure here the expert does not need to be explained. The infusion pump or insulin pump also has control elements 9, for example, push buttons for command input and a display 10, which is operated by the control of the pump. Not shown is the power supply of the insulin pump, which is a battery power supply in a body-worn pump. It is also known that the infusion pump has at least one alarm transmitter or signal generator 21. This can cause an audible and / or tactile alarm signal for the infusion pump carrier, ie a sound signal and / or a vibration signal; This alarm signal can have various functions and is usually designed differently (eg by means of tone sequence and / or pitch), so that the user can recognize the function of the alarm signal and distinguish it from other alarms. In particular, it does not have to be a danger-relevant alarm signal, ie an alarm in the narrower sense. On the contrary, danger significant alarms, ie, for example, in an occlusion of the infusion line usually not be deactivated according to the present invention. In the present application, however, the simplicity is always spoken of alarm and alarm, even if it is a normal signal or a signal generator. There may be present in the infusion pump various alarms, of which at least one alarm transmitter is designed according to the invention. The alarm generator 21 is operated by the controller 4 or by a separate alarm transmitter circuit. An alarm can be triggered by an event in the pump (directly or with a time delay), such as by replacing the reservoir 2, or the alarm can be set by the user for a certain time or programmed after a certain period of time. In this case, the alarm of the alarm device takes over a reminder function for the user, which will be explained below. The setting or programming of the alarm is carried out via the control elements 9 and with the aid of the display device 10. The setting of event-related alarms via the controller with or without the user account.
  • The measuring device 11, in the example shown a blood glucose meter, has in a known manner a way of measuring at least one body value of the patient, in the case of the blood glucose meter, the blood sugar value. For this purpose, blood in a known manner on a test strip 13 through an insertion opening 14 in the device 11 are introduced, where in a likewise known manner the measurement takes place. This need not be further explained here since these measurement methods and alternatively applicable measurement methods are familiar to the person skilled in the art. In general, the device further comprises a display 12. A control circuit 16 in the device 11 controls the measurement and the display 12th
  • According to the invention, infusion pump 1 and measuring device 11 are now formed with one another for signal exchange. It may be a wired connection or, preferably, a wireless connection. In the figure, a radio link through modules 15 and 17 in the device 11 and in the infusion pump 1 and by an arrow 18 as a connection from the device 11 to the infusion pump 1 (unidirectional signal connection from the device 11 to the pump 1). In addition, a signal connection can also be provided by the infusion pump 1 to the device 11, preferably also via the modules 17 and 15, which is indicated by the arrow 19. These modules can be prepared, for example a radio link according to the Bluetooth ® Standard between the device 11 and pump. 1 The pump 1 and the measuring device 11 are preferably designed such that a mutual identification and verification takes place during the signal exchange, so that the pump and the measuring device do not pay attention to signals from other devices; such is known to the person skilled in the art and will not be explained further here.
  • According to the invention, the infusion pump or the portable insulin pump 1 is now designed so that the alarm of the alarm transmitter 21 can be deactivated by a signal of the measuring device 11. This can be done in different ways. Thus, the signal 18 may be a specific, provided in the device 11 signal, which includes as information only that at least a predetermined alarm of the alarm generator 21 is to be disabled in the infusion pump, or that the alarm of a predetermined alarm device among several alarms disabled shall be. This signal is evaluated upon receipt by the module 17 from the controller 4 of the pump 1 and an already set alarm is cleared or the controller suppresses the next triggered by an event alarm due to the received signal from the device 11. Only such alarms are suppressed , which are accordingly marked as suppressible in the control. However, the signal received by the module 17 can also act directly on the alarm transmitter, or deactivate it temporarily, without the influence of the control. Under deactivation or suppression of an alarm is understood that either an already set alarm is not triggered or deleted, or even that an alarm from the pump 1 is not set, if previously the signal emitted by the meter has been received and from the controller 4 has been evaluated accordingly. Furthermore, this also means that a set alarm is postponed.
  • The infusion pump may also have a plurality of alarm devices or a plurality of circuits for operating a common alarm transmitter, of which at least one or one can be deactivated by the signal and at least one further alarm transmitter or a further circuit can not be influenced by the signal. Different types of alarms then differ in whether they are output as deactivatable alarms via one alarm transmitter or as non-deactivatable alarms via the other alarm transmitter or via one or the other alarm circuit.
  • However, the signal from the device 11 may also be a signal containing further information, such as a measured value, and only as an additional indication of the deactivation of the alarm in the manner described. Further, the signal from the device 11 may only be a signal with information without specific alarm information and the infusion pump is configured to be off the measurement signal or from the comparison of the same with predetermined measured values or a measured value range decides whether the alarm is to be deactivated or not. This can be done by the controller 4 of the infusion pump.
  • In a preferred embodiment, the infusion pump 1 can be designed such that an alarm of an alarm transmitter can be activated by the signal from the measuring device 11. In this case, therefore, an alarm is activated by the signal emitted by the meter and received by the pump 1, either directly or via the controller 4. This can lead to the immediate or delayed release of an alarm.
  • In a particular embodiment of the invention, a signal 19 can be delivered from the infusion pump 1 to the device 11 and there can influence an alarm transmitter of the device 11, not shown, in the same way, as has been explained for the alarm transmitter of the infusion pump 1. In particular, therefore, the alarm can be disabled in the meter and / or set.
  • The following are examples of how the new ability to disable or activate an alarm improves the utility of the insulin pump or blood glucose meter:
  1. 1. In known insulin pumps an alarm is generated as a reminder alarm immediately or after a predetermined time after events have been triggered in the insulin pump 1, such as changing the insulin reservoir 2 or the delivery of a meal bolus. These reminder alarms prompt the bellmouth to perform a blood glucose test. According to the present invention, such a reminder alarm can be deactivated by the signal of the blood glucose meter. This is preferably done in such a way that the infusion pump deactivates the reminder alarm on the basis of the signal of the measuring device if the signal is within one predetermined, for example, an adjustable or permanently programmed period of time before the alarm time is present or has been present. For example, the bolus reminder alarm can be disabled, or not set in the pump or be set, but not be triggered if, for example, within one hour before the alarm time already a signal from the blood glucose meter has been present. This means that within the last hour before the alarm time already a blood glucose measurement has been carried out by the device 11, so that the memory of a measurement is currently not necessary. It is also possible to deactivate the reminder alarm by shifting it in time so that, depending on the signal, it takes place at a predetermined later time instead of the scheduled time.
  2. 2. In another example, in known insulin pumps, an event is activated by an event, eg bolus administration, at the expiration of which an alarm is given, eg 3 hours after the bolus administration. If a measurement is now carried out by the device 11 before the end of this time, and thus a signal 18 for the pump 1 is generated, it resets the timer so that the alarm does not take place or is deactivated.
  3. 3. In another example, known insulin pumps are provided with an alarm which is triggered when the pump wearer has not performed any operating operations on the pump for a predetermined time, eg 12 hours. This alarm can also be deactivated if the device 11 has indicated by means of a signal or in this case preferably by means of a plurality of signals spaced in time, that the blood sugar has been measured sufficiently frequently during this time. This alarm is therefore preferably deactivated only if several signals 18 of the device 11 have arrived at the pump within the predetermined time.
  4. 4. Another example is possible by the embodiment in which a signal of the device 11 can set an alarm. If, within a predetermined period of time, a plurality of signals 18 are present in the form of measured values which are detected by the pump as falling below a predetermined blood sugar measurement value, an alarm is issued which prompts the pump carrier to trigger the temporary reduction of the basal rate. In a preferred embodiment, the pump 1 can be designed so that in case of a lack of response of the pump wearer to this alarm within a predetermined time, this function of the pump is triggered automatically.
  5. 5. Another example concerns the deactivation of a meal of Bolus arm. Such reminds the pump wearer to trigger a meal bolus within a predetermined time interval. Such an alarm set at a predetermined time can also be deactivated if a signal 18 of the measuring device is present, preferably a signal 18 containing a measured value which is recognized by the pump as lying in a predetermined value range.
  6. 6. Another example involves alarming the device 11 based on a signal 19 from the pump 1 to the device 11. Thus, the bellhousing can be alerted by an alarm of the blood glucose meter that a bolus command on the pump from this is carried out without previously with the device 11, a measurement has been performed. When executing a bolus command, the pump thus checks whether a signal 18 from the device 11 has been received within a predetermined previous time span, which means that a measurement has been carried out. If this is not the case, then the pump 1 triggers an alarm on the device 11 via a signal 19 which reminds the pump carrier of the measurement. Further, generally or situationally, an alarm may be given to the device 11 after a bolus release on the pump and drain be given a predetermined period of time, for example 2 hours after the bolus release.
  7. 7. In another example, timers or alarms set on the device 11 to remember measurements may also be transmitted to the pump 1 via a signal 18 and set there. Since the pump 1 is always with the user, it is also reminded of the necessary measurements, if he does not have the blood glucose meter in alarm hearing range. These alarm signals are preferably designed or consist of such sound and / or vibration sequences that the pump user understands as a request for blood glucose measurement.
